When I shot this dog, I didn't think it was going to be anything at all. I think I mis-judged him by a whole bunch. Glad I decided to just shoot away. I love how this guy turned out. So fluffy!
Velvia high on the processing.
This was my favourite dog on the day. So majestic. He came running at me at a nice slow jog and I was able to capture a few good shots. Cinema low on the processing.
I would like to own a dog just like this.
This shot looks like it would make a fun postcard or greeting card. Maybe one of those "From all of us" kind of themes? Fun shot. Used Provia low for processing.
It's much more fun with three..
It was hard to choose which dog I liked the most today at the dog park, but this girl here was really special. This is exactly the kind of dog I would like to own at some point. What a beautiful animal.
Definitely top 3 on the day.
Ok, second attempt at a storyboard - I kind of like the idea of these, although mine don't tell a story yet (it's not lost on me, working on it).
Had a lot of fun at the dog park today. A lot of amazing animals. Shooting them is pretty difficult as they never stop moving. Anyhow, lots of fun making these.

This is my first attempt at making a storyboard. I saw this idea done at another photographer's site so I thought I would try it. Not sure how this will look. It's hard to take photo's at night, especially of moving fireworks :) I thought these were kinda cool looking.
Really not sure how to process these guys. I'm sure practice would be helpful with this photo type.
Ok, used Cinema Middle for the processing. I think this version looks better. The lighting wasn't too bad in this one. Three light sources seems to be working fairly well. I would love to go buy more kit, but I better hold off and learn with what I have.
In celebration of nemo's awesome 2010/11 Hockey season, winning a tournament, MVP, player of the game, 25 goals, 7 assists. So proud.
He also helped me light this scene as well as added to the concept (thanks!) Was playing with placement of studio lights. It takes quite a bit of thought, once you get going. Pressing "on" isn't exactly all that is needed. The remote for the camera is really helpful.

Ok, so different pose, different lighting. I believe that I am holding two 250w lights, directly over head (while spraying water for that indoor rain technique) with another 1500w coming from the left, diffused with an umbrella and it sorta works. Still not sure if I am getting the processing right.
Was reading an interesting article on histograms and what they are used for. I had no idea, although I did hear it on a photography documentary. Interesting stuff. Click the image for the link (Thanks, Michael Frye).

Ok, so just for fun, I thought I would put one more filter up there so you can see the difference. I dunno. Still figuring it all out..
Filters are... fun.. Oh, resisting the urge to buy polarizing filter. :)
Ok, so "post-processing" is something that I am really new at and not quite sure how to do effectively. I think it's safe to say that this shot can be made to look like it was done in the 1970's. Back to the drawing board....
